Hi I'm Steven

Oldest of ten kids-- piano maestro in the making-- and Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Michigan but moved to Spanish Fork when I was three. I´ve been there ever since. Yes, I have 10 kids in my family-- 5 boys, 5 girls. (If you were curious, you´re not alone. That´s the typical response.) A lot of people ask if 10 kids is too big of a family, but I love it. There's never a dull moment. :) Playing the piano is much more than just a pastime for me. It's my passion and my medium of expression. I seek to uplift, motivate, and inspire others through my music. I never expect to be a concert pianist, but I know that God has given me this gift for sharing with others, and so I share when I can. I'm also a fan of writing poetry and short stories. I'm a self-proclaimed academic and love to learn about almost anything. The thing I want most out of life is to be a father and husband. There is nothing I can imagine that would be more fulfilling than fatherhood. Children have always had a special place in my heart; we can all learn a lot from their innocent, believing, sincere perspective on life. I want to make a difference for good in this world.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I've put the doctrine to the test and found that it really does make me happy. I am most joyful when I'm following the teachings laid out in the scriptures and by modern day prophets. All you who are heavy laden with the cares of the world, I invite you to call the missionaries and ask them what they can do for you. I won't promise that life will be perfect-- it won't-- but you won't feel lost anymore.

How I live my faith

At the moment, I'm serving a mission in Salem, Oregon. It's an amazing experience! All day, every day, I'm totally devoted to serving others and teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. For those of you who are thinking ''That sounds miserable'', I dare you to try it for just one day. For 24 hours, do your best to only think of your loved ones, your coworkers, or even random people on the street. I can promise you, it's very fulfilling. I've attended church religiously (yes, that's a pun) for many years and taken on various leadership roles there.
